Alt_movement

Neuro Café 18th January 2023 by Linda S


We were joined by Craig from Alt_movement: an organization which operates out of a private Crossfit training facility and describes their participants as "adaptive athletes", led by fully qualified coaches who specialise in adaptive and alternative methods of training. They support people with a range of learning and physical disabilities and complex needs.

His classes concentrate on ‘ What can you do?’ rather than ‘What can't you do?’

Jay, the very first client, is now a coach. Craig hopes to offer jobs to people with disabilities, also eventually apprenticeships and work experience.

Feedback

  • Seeing people like us with disabilities doing things is inspiring.

  • Changes your attitude and mental health.

  • Good to be in a community with others

Craig offers tips via Instagram. Suggests you put yourself outside of your comfort zone.

- Ask My Stroke Guide or community for a buddy if you feel shy.

- Tends to pair people up during workouts.

- Sessions force people to interact and have a conversation.
